Historic Locust Grove to hold public meeting about proposed site changes

October 18, 2019


Historic Locust Grove will hold a public meeting to show and discuss our future construction plans on Tuesday, October 29 at 6:30 pm. The historic site and National Historic Landmark has worked with architects DeLeon Primmer, landscape architects Environs, Metro Parks, and other consultants on plans for an open air pavilion, new pathways, parking, and entrance, and upgrades to the interior of the Visitor Center, all with the goal of improving visitor access and experience, and providing spaces for new programs and activities. While Locust Grove’s historic house remains at the center of the story and mission of the site, the changes will focus on the other elements of the 55-acre site.

The plans have received preliminary approval from Metro’s historic preservation office, and the site looks forward to a September 2020 start date for construction.

Neighbors, community members, and media are invited to view the plans, ask questions, and be part of the experience of re-creating Locust Grove as a historic site for the 21st century.

This event is free and open to the public; please RSVP to marketing@locustgrove.org. This meeting will take place in the Audubon Room in the Visitors' Center at Locust Grove.
